Sudbury, Ontario, July 19, 2017, Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP), is pleased to announce that it has initiated engagement protocols pursuant to its Early Exploration Benefits Agreement (“EEBA”) with Neskantaga First Nation. These protocols are being initiated in conjunction with Northern Superior’s plans to restart exploration activities on it’s 100% owned Ti-pi-haa-kaa-ning (“TPK”) mineral property in northwestern Ontario.
Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “We are pleased with the opportunity to once again work closely on the TPK property with the First Nation community of Neskantaga. The Community’s involvement with our exploration programs on TPK will be essential to the success of those programs.”
Northern Superior plans to initiate a new exploration program on the TPK property during the third quarter this year. The planned exploration program will involve three activities:
- Exploration Program Over the Northwest Portion of the Property
An area where Northern Superior discovered and defined the 3.5km wide Kelly Lake gold grain- in-till dispersal corridor and associated boulders (which assayed as high as 727g/t gold; 111 g/t silver and 4.05% copper), leading to the discovery of a mineralized greenstone belt (press release, December 7, 2011). The purpose of the prospecting program is to define specific mineral targets associated with this belt through prospecting, till and boulder sampling;
- Structural Study, Southeast Portion of the Property
Conducting a structural study on the southeast portion of the property to strengthen the core drill targets previously established from the distribution and concentration of gold grains associated with the unique and remarkable 6km wide TPK gold grain-in-till apron. Structural information will be established through:
- re-logging of drill core associated with previous core drill programs;
- completion of tele-viewer studies on selected core drill holes;
- re-analysis of the Company’s geophysical data (both airborne magnetic data and ground induced polarization data); and
- re-visitation of any relevant outcrop; and
- Completion of Upgrades on the Company’s Rowlandson Lake Exploration Camp In Preparation of Core Hole Drilling on the Property, Q1/ 2 of 2018.
The structural studies and camp upgrades maintenance are essential activities required to support a core hole drilling program within the southeast part of the property that Northern Superior intends to initiate during the winter of 2018.
